UFC On Fx 3 Results Recap: Main Card

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Generally we break these things down fight-by-fight, but for this event we're going to do one recap for the whole main card. This will give a brief description of each fight, what might be next for each fighter, and whether the fight is worthy of a watch or not.

Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall

Johnson and McCall met for the second time after their scoring debacle at UFC on FX 2, and it was Johnson who pulled out the narrow win in this bout to move on to the Flyweight tournament final. The fight was similar to the first bout, but Johnson's takedown defense held up in the third round and it made the difference on the scorecards. There's no need to speculate on who he will face next - it will be Joseph Benavidez, likely in the early fall.

Erick Silva vs. Charlie Brenneman

Silva staved off a relentless wrestling attack from Brenneman and took advantage of a small mistake, taking Brenneman's back and submitting him with a rear naked choke late in the first round. Silva has proven himself to be a top-flight welterweight prospect, and will get an even tougher challenge the next time out. There are plenty of options - Mike Pierce, Brian Ebersole, maybe even fellow UFC on FX 3 winner Mike Pyle.

Mike Pyle vs. Josh Neer

Pyle shook off a surging Neer attack with a perfect right that dropped Neer flat on his face, out cold with just four seconds left in the round. Pyle has never really shown that kind of power before, and KOing Josh Neer is a very impressive feat. As I mentioned above, a fight with Silva might be the best course of action for Pyle's next bout.

Eddie Wineland vs. Scott Jorgensen

Wineland's boxing looked excellent and he took out Jorgensen in the second round via TKO. After dropping Jorgensen in the first with a jab, he followed up in the second with a solid right that collapsed Jorgensen to the mat. Three more shots on the ground and it was over. A bout with Yves Jabouin would be a stellar next fight for the former WEC champ.
